The unfortunate and serious accident at the nuclear power plants in Fukushima, Japan caused by the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 left Japan with a serious blow. Japan was deprived of electric power. This problem further accelerated the introduction of renewable energies. This book surveys the new materials and technologies needed to welcome the next generation of energy conversion and storage devices, such as lithium secondary batteries on the basis of nanotechnology. Most of the contributors for this book are from institutions researching lithium batteries. This book provides an overview of nanotechnology for lithium batteries from basic to applied research in selected high technology areas. The book especially focuses on near-term and future advances in these fields.
